Summer time rap

By Maria Gregoriou

Social media has been going wild lately with feeds like ‘When is Snoop Dogg coming to Cyprus’ and replies like ‘Snoop Dogg is coming to Cyprus?’ To cut a long conversation short it ends with ‘I must get tickets!’ So, to make sure we give you enough time to get your hands on what can only be described as a golden ticket, we thought we’d dish out the information early and let you know that the singer – or recording artist, as Wikipedia likes to call him – will be giving a performance on August 9 at Makronissos Kandi Beach in Ayia Napa.

OK stop shouting out ‘Ayia Napa, Ayia Napa, Ayia Napa, I say Ayia you say Napa’ with your arm waving an imaginary wand in the air, and save it for the night because we have some important nightlife details to get down to.

So now you know the man who’ll be performing, the early-August date (yes, during that relaxed month when partying is very much on our minds) and the place where it’s all going down, let’s try and get our heads around the fact that Snoop Dogg has been on the music scene since 1992.

He started out with his album Doggystyle which debuted at the number one spot on both the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Hot R&B/ Hip-Hop Songs charts. His hit songs What’s My Name? and Gin & Juice from the 90’s are still very well-known today (and not just if you are a Hip-Hop fan).

23 years later, Snoop Dogg is just as popular and his latest album Bush, released earlier this year, sold 27,000 copies in its first week of release. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the track California Roll from the album features Stevie Wonder and Pharrell Williams.

As the event will most definitely be sold out, you can get your tickets from The first 1000 tickets to be sold will go for €25, after that pre-sold tickets are €35, tickets at the door are €50 and if you would like a seat at a VIP table then get booking at €50 per person (presale) and €75 at the door but you have to have a minimum of 10 people at each table. Somehow, finding nine other people interested in going doesn’t sound like such a hard thing.
